Manchester City have made a bid of £100million to sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, reports claim. The Premier League champions are looking to bolster their forward line and their interest in Grealish has been well documented since the completion of Euro 2020.
Grealish has been away on holiday in Mykonos and more recently Dubrovnik but now he wants his future resolved.
Aston Villa are prepared to offer Grealish a new deal but the offer is believed to have matched their valuation of their captain.
It means any final decision could ultimately rest with Grealish, who is believed to be considering the move to the Etihad Stadium.
The Telegraph have broken the news of City’s first bid after the clubs started formal negotiations earlier this week.
